monica crowley tweeted so boner can't even deliver the gop caucus maybe he has behaved as a b willing to raise taxes and stuff. it was a teeny tiny tax increase on millionaires and billionaires. they have a sad. >> they are not going to have a good christmas. >> stephanie: no. [ laughter ] >> stephanie: let's go to amy in illinois. hi, amy welcome. >> caller: hi. i enjoy your show so much. thank you. i think in general society doesn't place a lot of importance on a sense of humor.
humor helps calm down a touchy situation. i think school should teach humor as a class. >> stephanie: yeah. >> caller: because to me the people that don't have a sense of humor are collecting guns and going to the gun range, and i would rather live in a world where people are laughing. >> stephanie: that's right. stay home and tell a fart joke. come on.

card game, but you have to imagine one game where a player goes in to the back room before he makes a bet and gets the approval of a bunch of rabid ferrets. honestly it sounded like something eric cantor typed up on his smartphone on the way over from his office. something that he knew would implode.

embarrassment it really is and the republicans are gutting funds for what we need to take care of these sick people. >> stephanie: yeah there are consequences to ignoring that. all right. twenty-nine minutes after the hour. right back on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ the debate about gun violence in america starts here. when the unthinkable happened we all thought, never again. today there is no movie more relevant than "bowling for columbine." michael moore's academy award winning documentary, "bowling for columbine." current tv presents this important film tonight at 6 eastern followed immediately by an encore presentation.
toys or a bike or toys or something like that. >> what it is that you want? >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> real estate. >> stephanie: it is the "stephanie miller show." welcome to it. 1-800-steph-1-2 the phone number toll free from anywhere. everybody is -- we were in a hard break at the bottom of the hour, but everybody just observed a moment of silence for the victims in connecticut. joe biden was speaking yesterday about -- do we have that him talking about -- what is it the gun control commission. >> the president is absolutely committed to keeping his promise that we'll act and act in a way that -- as he says if we can only save one life we have to take action. >> stephanie: and jay carney yesterday as well. >> everyone in merck has a steak in doing something to end the
scourge of gun violence in this nation. >> stephanie: we did post the conservative case of the assault weapon's ban. >> i will post it now. >> stephanie: ted olson who wrote the conservative proposal for gay marriage. it's the judge that sentenced jared lee laughner. he says we can't draw a sensible line on guns we may as well call the united states a failure. i sentenced jared yesterday. the ban -- the ban wasn't all that stringent if you already owned a gun you could keep it and sell it to somebody else but at least it was something.
half of the nation's deadliest shootings occurred after the ban expired. hard six mass shootings that have been deadlyer after the expiration of the ban. bring back the assault weapon's ban. ban manufacturer importation, transfer of high-capacity assault weapons. i don't care whether it's called gun control, i'm all for it. i say it as someone who prefers fox news to msnbc. i say it as someone who thinks the district court got it right. i say it as someone who
generally speaking is not a big fan of the regulatory states. it has a useful advocacy function in our liberal democracy, and there is just no need for civilians to own an assault weapon. it speaks horribly the public discourse in this country that talking about gun reform in the wake of a mass shooting is inappropriate or politicizing a mass tragedy. it is inappropriate only to those dilutional enough to believe it would disrespect the victims of the gun violence to do anything but sit around and mourn their death.
[ applause ] >> having said that after a game of paintball a kid shot his friend with a shotgun and killed him. >> that article is now posted on your facebook page. >> stephanie: that's like magic how that happens. [♪ magic wand ♪] >> yep. >> stephanie: steve in tennessee. hi, steve. >> caller: hi. i totally agree with the assault weapon ban, but i also believe everybody should have them or nobody should have them and the people who are already in possession of them they should take that whole list of what they are banning and all of those people who have those banned guns should either turn them in, or else be charged with felony possession. i also think that this should come from the top down as well. you know? because it's horrible that there were twenty kids tragically
murdered in connecticut, but at the same time it strikes me as a little hypocritical when the military has killed literally thousands of innocent children in iraq and afghanistan, which were war crimes so i think they should also look at a un treaty -- >> stephanie: first of all, i don't know if you have seen this soldier that did do this massacre in afghanistan, they can asking for the death penalty for him. >> sure. and i don't agree with the assertion that everyone should have them or nobody should have them in. because you don't want someone like me haven an assault weapon.

whatever we do we don't want erode the lights of citizens. kasick should not have signed such a divisive bill less than a week after the tragedy. at the minimum, you would think. >> stephanie: wow. >> stephanie: carol in pennsylvania. hi, carol. >> caller: hi, what are we going to do next week? >> we're going to have some great bests of. >> caller: i hope so. but my statement is this don't worry congress isn't going to pass anything of meaning, but they did pass clint eastwood day. so we can all be confident in that. >> thank you. >> stephanie: this just in -- [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: from rolland sexy liberal tour director the warner in washington, d.c. just released ten vip tickets this

[ inaudible ] kennedy, jr. wasn't tested. and he is interested in running. and the other name we heard yesterday. ben affleck.

world. sean hannity. >> this is after the tragedy. >> stephanie: with the fiscal cliff. >> yep. >> i watched the president. and within seconds the president rejected it anyway. harry reid said we're going to take it up anyway. it seems to me the president from the beginning has wanted to go over the cliff. as he been playing politics?

>> yeah. >> something very peculiar happened a couple of days tomorrow. hillary clinton was supposed to headline a briefing but she is a no show for tomorrow. you know why? apparently the madam secretary bumped her head yesterday and her doctor recommended she stay in bed. by the way who is running state right now? okay to run the show but not to testify. >> stephanie: put a video link by her bed -- what? they are such idiots. first of all like she is going to fake a concussion. like hilary has ever backed down from a fight. >> yeah. >> she is obviously a scaredy cat. >> stephanie: and refixed responsibility at the assist
important secretary which is an arbitrary place to look for when a decision takes place. all right. allen west. >> i'm not a doctor, but it seems that the secretary of state has come down with a case of the benghazi flu. we need to know who altered the intelligence report. >> >> stephanie: oh, gosh it was the theme. charlie hurt on fox news. >> a football player has a concussion and he goes to the hospital. our secretary of state has a concussion, and she just goes home. doesn't go through the kinds of tests -- it's all just very curious. what are they hiding behind? why did secretary of state clinton -- why is she not eager
to go before the congressional committee to say these were the problems that we found, and when i'm gone this is what you should do? >> how does this guy know what kind of tests hilary had? >> stephanie: they want to see her medical records, and the president's birth certificate and college records as well. >> ironically that guy sounds like he has been hit in the head. >> stephanie: it's their favorite punching bag, the clintons are back. >> yeah. >> whatever! >> stephanie: uh-huh. okay. bill o'reilly. >> government control of the health care industry makes you weaker and them stronger. regulation of guns makes citizens more dependent on police, thus the government grows stronger.
the more shots, pardon the pun, the feds and the states call the less freedom we the people have. >> what a load of crap. >> stephanie: that was an entire pant load right there. yeah. and steve doocy and peter johnson -- >> peter johnson.

couple of quick points i wanted to make. i'm looking at a chart nypd gun fight statistic from 1990 to 2000 they had a mean score of 15% for hits. do you think it's reasonable to limit a civilian's ability to have a higher class of magazine to defend themselves with a handgun and hold them to a higher standard than an nypd officer. >> stephanie: i think i'm missing your point entirely. you need an assault weapon to defend yourself. >> caller: no there is also the limit for higher capacity magazines for handguns -- >> stephanie: you need a high capacity magazine to defend yourself. >> if an nypd officer is only
going to hit their target 15% of the time, why would you want to hold a civilian to a higher standard? i mean these are trained officers. and then the other point -- >> stephanie: but that makes no sense at all. >> caller: oh, sure it does. >> no it doesn't. >> caller: if the average police officer is only going to hit their target one out of six shots -- >> stephanie: so everybody needs assault weapons because they have bad aim? >> caller: no, i'm saying put reasonable restrictions on rifles -- >> stephanie: what is reasonable? >> caller: i do believe that there should be the ban on high capacity 30-round magazines that should be reinstituted. but the point is most people for self-defense when they are carrying a handgun, a glock, for instance, if you limit that capacity, you are limiting the person's ability to defend themselves from one or more
assail ents. >> stephanie: okay. >> >> caller: and history has shown at some point in our future we will be invaded by another country -- >> stephanie: okay. >> if only we had more guns we could defending ourselves against canada. >> stephanie: yes, right.
